Originally scheduled to be at the Apache Casino Hotel in Lawton, the chapter Oklahoma SPJ Pro Chapter board decided to move its annual awards banquet online due to COVID-19.
“While I absolutely hate that we were not able to celebrate the best in Oklahoma journalism together in person, that does not diminish the hard work and dedication shown by this year’s award winners,” OKSPJ chapter president Lenzy Krehbiel-Burton said.
Congratulations to all the winners!
